Arkansas and Vanderbilt have both scored huge offensive linesmen commitments.

6-7, 270lb Kellen Diesch from Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club, TX is ranked as the 83rd-overall players in Texas, the 48th overall offensive linesman and 575th player in the country overall.

Vanderbilt’s big commitment for the weekend was from 6-7, 305lb Devin Cochran from Greater Atlanta High School in Norcross, GA.

Cochran is ranked the 84th overall player in Georgia and the 79th overall offensive tackle in the country. He is also ranked the 906th overall player in the country.


Diesch was chased by Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri Texas, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, as well as TCU, Baylor and TCU among the 30 offers he received before he made his commitment to Arkansas. He had visited Arkansas a number of times before he made his commitment, so this was hardly a surprise – although it’s another welcome to Bret Bielema’s philosophy of recruiting giant offensive linesmen to help his running backs.

Cochran had 17 offers, including almost half the schools in the SEC (Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina). He said that he fell in love with Vanderbilt after visiting the school.
